A ranch next to the one I hunt leases hunting rights to 2 guys from the bay area for $10K a piece per year. The area they can hunt is about 2,000 acres. It comes out to $5/acre but they don't break up the acreages for different leases. It's lease all 2,000 acres or nothing. In this zone, there are Mule Deer/Blacktail hybrids and you can draw 2 deer tags per year (Definitely not record book quality). I know there is no way I'd pay $10,000 a year to hunt for 2 bucks. It's crazy what some people pay for hunting leases.
